Never Let Your Activism Be Artless: An Interview With Lucien Greaves of The Satanic Temple

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing The Satanic Temple‘s Lucien Greaves about art, activism, and what religion means as a framework rather than a faith. “Recently” isn’t quite right — these questions were written back in February, as you might notice by the news reference in one of them, but we hope you’ll forgive us […]

How Not To Be Seen: Unlearning Invisibility

A few months ago Sam invited the staff writers to pen some personal pieces for Haute Macabre. I’ve since considered writing about a variety of subjects that interest me, but there’s something else, something much more personal that’s been on my mind for a very long time and this suddenly seemed like a singular opportunity to […]

The Somber Poetry Of Dreams: The Collage Art Of Hidden Velvet

The enigmatic artist known as Hidden Velvet seemed to appear on my radar overnight, and yet, whilst gazing at the somber elegance of her surreal collages, I feel that I have been carrying velvety fragments of her assemblages with me, tucked into the shadowy corners of my heart, for all of my life. A floating cloud softly obscures […]

Haute Macabre Muse: Louisianna Purchase

Macabre Muse: Louisianna Purchase

photo by Muted Fawn Hailed as Austin’s best drag performer by the Austin Chronicles in 2016, Louisanna Purchase is stepping over Sharon Needles’ grave as Kween of Horror Drag (no shade, Sharon, but you’re a little less spooky and a little more sultry now than you were on Drag Race). Louisanna’s Clark Kent is Chad […]

All Saints

All Saints is my current obsession.  I am absolutely in lust with 99% of their items, and couldn’t possibly list every one that strikes my fancy.  I lay in bed at night dreaming of owning their entire line, and prancing about in their garments.  They are a bit pricey, especially considering the U.S. Dollar to […]

Android Lust

I’ve been in lust with Alexander McQueen’s Samsonite Black Label luggage since it came out a couple of years ago, especially the “hero” ribcage suitcase. This year’s addition to the line adds a futuristic chrome version to the original ivory, charcoal grey, and classic black. Black: $775.00. Limited Edition Silver: $1500 Bargain of the Day: […]

Rhinestone Apocalypse

From Designer Gas Masks : We are in a state of perpetual war – with ourselves and with the eco-system that sustains us. Perpetual war breeds perpetual fear. In the present context, this fear stems from our extreme desire for authenticity and manifests itself in our collectively insatiable culture of consumption. Deep down, we are […]

Death to Fashion

Japanese artist Fumie Sasabuchi has done her own renditions of published fashion images, primarily working in colored pencil and ballpoint pen over magazine pages.  Personally, I find her deconstructed skin and skeleton phantom additions to be much more interesting than the original image.   More examples of her visceral work after the jump.

Heartbreaker: Vampire Fang Cufflinks

These clever vampire fang cufflinks from Stephen Einhorn would be a great gift no matter what. Priced at $199 in sterling, $2,279 in white gold, or a paltry $15,735 in platinum, they are also available in several grades of yellow gold. But the really, really awesome thing about these is the gift wrap. When you […]
